CSF 2.0 Community Profiles

Since the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) was first released in 2014, the CSF has been used by communities that share interests, goals, and outcomes for cybersecurity risk management within a specific context, such as a sector, technology, or challenge. The term “Community Profiles” describes the ways various organizations use the common taxonomy of the CSF to develop cybersecurity risk management guidance that applies to multiple organizations in a community. The NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has worked with communities to develop Community Profiles for a variety of use cases. These Community Profiles are available on the NCCoE’s Framework Profile Resource Center.
